Strategic Planning

Date Wednesday 23-08-2017 Category Mgmt./ Leadership

Course Overview
Strategic Planning introduces the process of viewing all management practices in a cohesive manner as components in the overall process of enhancing long-term organizational performance. It has to do with understanding the theory and principles of strategic management and the resulting ability to practice strategic thinking. This helps executives as well as decision makers gain the ability to perceive issues from an overall organizational perspective rather than from the functional or technical perspective.
Hence, it focuses on an organization as a whole and its transactions with its environment to sustain its competitive edge among its competitors.
